When the Heart Is Without Fear – Fear Poem

When a heart is without fear,
it draws near
not what is dear
but chases mere

hints of a knotting,
a tying of strings
a blending of roots.

A heart without fear
is a mouth inhaling
our legs prevailing
furthest from bailing

on a chance of rain
on the moon or in Spain.

A heart without fear
takes on gravel
never wielding a gavel
willing and wanting to travel

and unravel
until

until, we are

near and dear
and free of fear.
